The Laowa 24mm f/14 2X Macro Probe lens – Sony E / FE mount is one of the weirdest lenses on the market but is able to create perspectives which are simply not possible with other existing lenses. Suitable for both videographers and photographers, it is a full manual lens, with manual aperture and manual focus dials. Full frame compatible, the image circle of the Laowa Probe lens also covers Super 35mm, and smaller sensors.

The Laowa Probe is the worlds first consumer lens which focuses 2:1 macro to infinity with a “bug eye” perspective. The wide angle design offers increased depth of field, useful when at very close distances, producing greater background details, more than conventional telephoto macro lenses.

Macro lenses in the market tend to have a long focal length (from 60mm to 120mm) and the subject fills most of the frame, isolating it from the surrounding environment. The Laowa 24mm, allows exceptionally close focus to the subject of 2cm @ 2:1 life-size reproduction, showing a great amount of detail and texture. At the same time, you can enjoy a compelling wide angle ‘Bugs Eye’ view (84.1 degree field of view) so that background surroundings and details can be included in the shots. You can easily create a very informative and stunning macro bugs-eye perspective that no other lenses can do. The fact that it can focus very close to the subject enables a lot of shooting possibilities.

The front barrel of the lens is waterproof with a LED ring light mounted at the lens tip. This enables the lens front to be underwater whilst operating the camera out of the water, for shots in pools, streams, tanks, etc opening up a wealth of creative possibilities like no other lens. The long tubular barrel with small lens tip enables getting into tight spaces, and minimises disturbance of the surrounding environment. It also enables to keep a safer distance when photographing certain animals, such as dangerous reptiles, and to enable access into areas that would be inaccessible with standard macro lens kit.

This Laowa 24mm F14 2x Macro Probe lens opens up possibilities unattainable with other lenses with not only animals, but also product photography and videography. Getting in close to subjects, under, over and between objects, through tunnels and tubes, under water, – explore creative possibilities and new perspectives.

Blackmagic Pocket 6K EF

Featuring a larger 6144 x 3456 Super 35 sensor and EF lens mount, the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 6K lets you use larger EF photographic lenses to create cinematic images with shallower depth of field, allowing creative defocussed backgrounds and gorgeous bokeh effects. Extra resolution also gives you more room for reframing in editing and colour correction. This means that you can shoot in 6K and then in post production zoom and re‑frame to allow wide shots and close ups to be created, all from a single camera and without losing image quality.
